From the MapInfo Pro User guide:

Working with Multi-Page Layouts

Users can easily create and manage multi-page layouts that can be saved as a PDF document.

To add pages to the layout designer, click the Add New Page to Layout button located on the bottom left corner of the Layout window.

To delete a page from the layout designer, click the Delete Selected Page button.

To scroll through pages to view them in the window, use the scroll bar located on the right side of the Layout window, or use the page links located on the lower left corner of the Layout window.

All of the pages in a Layout window have the same page size, orientation and margins. If one changes the page setup, then the new setup applies to all of the pages in that Layout window. Layout windows are independent of each other, so one Layout window could be set up with Landscape orientation and another Layout window set up with Portrait orientation.

Content that hangs off of a page is clipped when printing or exporting (it does not continue on to a different page).

The Layout window displays only one page at a time.

To go to a different page, use the navigation buttons located along the lower left corner of the Layout window status bar, or click on a thumbnail page image on the left edge of the Layout window.

Users can resize the thumbnails list by dragging the vertical bar that separates the layout page from the thumbnails. Dragging the bar all the way to the left hides the thumbnails list.

Clicking on a map name in the Explorer window or Layer Control window causes that map's window to come to the front.

If the map is in a layout frame, the layout switches to that page to show the selected map.

TIP: Clicking on a map name in the Explorer window or Layer Control window causes that map's window to come to the front. If the map is in a layout frame, the layout switches to that page to show the selected map.

If the layout is setup to show grids and or guidelines, then those grids and guidelines stay in place as one navigates from page to page.

If users have frames selected on one page and then change pages, the selection will clear.

Frame selection on multi-page layouts exist just for a single page.

If users add pages and then save to a workspace, earlier versions of MapInfo Pro cannot open that workspace; only version 15.2 or later can open workspaces containing multi-page layouts.

Printing one frame spread out over multiple pages, such as four 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper, to be "pieced together" as a larger print out, is currently not available in 64-bit versions of MapInfo Pro.
